Broadcast RSC Live: Titus Andronicus
Wednesday 9 August7pm

Titus Andronicus

This is the third in the RSC’s Rome Season which showcases four of Shakespeare’s most political and bloody plays, set in and around ancient Rome.

Described as Shakespeare’s bloodiest play, Titus Andronicus sees the decay of Rome reach its most violent depths.  Titus (David Troughton) is a ruler exhausted by war and leaves Rome in disarray, with rape, cannibalism and brutality filling the moral void at the heart of a corrupt society. Directed by Blanche McIntyre. Designed by Robert Innes Hopkins. All four plays in this season share a great creative team. This, together with a reconfiguration of the stage, will bring an added intimacy to what will be a brutal, bloody and thrilling programme.

NT Live: Yerma

A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.

This unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph).

Billie Piper won the Evening Standard and Olivier Best Actress award for this role and the production won the Olivier Award for Best Revival.

John Le Carré

An Evening with George Smiley  (12A)

Broadcast live from London’s Royal Festival Hall, join us for a celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character. From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The Spy who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful description s of the War on Terror in The Night Manager, A Most Wanted Man and A Delicate Truth, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century.

In a rare public appearance and one-off event, the author reads from his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, which sees the return of his most iconic Cold War characters, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a unique question and answer session, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words. In conversation le Carré discusses the full breadth of his career spanning five decades, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby bespectacled spy, George Smiley.
